Transitioning to Fall

Fall is right around the corner. Kids are already headed back to school, but best believe that they will be taking advantage of the semi warm weather before the winter chill rolls in. Between jumping in leaves, trick-or-treating on Halloween and playing in the dirt in general, they’ll track an unwanted mess into your home. That means you need to be prepared for the mud, rain, debris and everything in between.

Furniture using performance fabrics can be a great investment to consider at this time, especially if you’re preparing for the holiday season with more family gatherings than usual. Your furniture shouldn’t have to succumb to seasonal distress — you can prepare for the inevitable with sofas, lounge chairs and other seating arrangements that are equally stylish, functional and protected from wear and tear.

Here are a few ways we recommend incorporating performance fabric furniture throughout your home as you prepare for fall:

1. Sofas
Your living space, whether it’s the main living room or in the basement, is going to feel the brunt of your children’s impact as they race from mud piles to your sofas for a little down time. Selecting a sofa with performance fabrics can ease the blow that comes with outdoor and even indoor play and keep these cozy areas of your home looking great at the same time.

2. Chairs
Whether you and your family spend the most time in the living room or family room, the seating arrangements in the space that sees the most traffic should involve performance fabric. At the very least, your shared seating option should be protected — a sectional sofa made using performance fabric can accommodate the whole family without looking worn out too quickly.

3. Entry way area rugs
Fall weather is truly unpredictable. Between the rain, wind, early snow and more, you tend to see the conditions of all of the seasons between the months of September and November. Instead of letting the kids trail in all of the dirt from playing in the yard, place high-traffic performance area rugs in the entryway as well as the landing near the back door. Area rugs that do well with foot traffic are generally dark in colour and include a pattern to hide potential stains and wear and tear. Shades reminiscent of fall, such as burgundy, brown or deep orange can make a beautiful seasonal statement while also keeping your floors in great shape.


Fall will be here before you know it. Even more, winter will also creep up quickly behind it. Investing in performance fabric furniture and accessories is a great way to prepare for the future and keep your house looking great no matter the season.
